Every once in a while, I get a hint of the new slang. The latest trend is "shorthand".

1990: Someone coins delish - short for "delicious". A TV show is later named "The Commish".

1995: Ben Rutter coins whatev' - short for "whatever".

2000: Jack Black uses p'zish [pronounced: puh-zish] - short for "position".

2005: Sixteen Feet coins tradish (tradition) and MacGyv' (MacGyver the Puppy).

Today: Dan Beatty just laid a new one on me: appreesh - short for "I appreciate it."
